concurrence of your Honorable Body 
therein . 

Respectfully submitted, 

Geo. B. Swift,

Aid. Madden moved to concur in the ap- 
pointment. 

The motion prevailed. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message: 

Mayor's Office, ) 
Chicago, JNov. 20, 1893. ] 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen— I beg leave to herewith 
return to you, without my approval, an or- 
dinance passed by your Honorable Body 
on the 9th day of Nov , 1893, granting to 
Sparr & Weiss the privilege of laying wires 
in and across certain streets in the City of 
Chicago. 1 am informed that a number of 
orders and ordinances have been passed 
similar to this, under cover of which the 
persons in whose favor they were granted 
have laid their electrical conductors across 
streets, and under sidewalks, over house 
tops and along the fronts of buildings, that 
propertv owners have been led to believe 
that such orders and ordinances authorized 
the construction of such work, which work 
in many cases is extremely vexatious and 
annoying to property holders. .Systems of 
this kind are extremely dangerous and a 
constant source of trouble to the Fire and 
Inspection Department on account of the 
danger from fire. 

If, however, your Honorable Body on 
further consideration should determine to 
pass this ordinance, 1 recommend that it 
should be so amended as to require said 
Sparr & Weiss to place their conductors 
properly insulated underground and in iron 
or steel pipes, and to enter the buildings 
wherein the lights are to be placed in the 
same manner. I think the ordinance 
should be again referred to the proper com- 
mittee and amended so as to embody the 
substance of the toregoing recommenda- 
tions, and so as to clearly and definitely 
state the locations where they propose to 
place their conductors. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Geo. B. Swift, 

Actinu Mayor. 



Aid. Madden moved that the vote by 
which the ordinances, referred to in the 
veto message, was passed be reconsidered. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Mulvihill moved that the ordinance 
be referred to the Committee on Gas, Oil 
and Electric Lights. 

The motion prevailed. 



ALSO, 

The following veto message: 

Mayor's Office, ) 
Chicago, Nov. 20, 1893. \ 

To the Honorable, the City Council, of 
the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— I herewith return, without 
my approval, the ordinance passed at your 
meeting of November 9, 1893, granting to 
the Mutual Electric Light and Power Com- 
pany of Chicago the right to erect and 
operate electric lights and to erect, main- 
tain and use one or more systems of elec- 
trical conductors above or under ground 
for the transmission of electric light, power 
and heat. 

My reasons for withholding my approval 
of said ordinance are as follows: 

The first section of the ordinance grants 
to said company in the broadest terms the 
power to erect, maintain ana use an un- 
limited number of systems of electrical 
conductors above or under ground. A pro- 
viso in the same section says that if '-said 
system of electrical conductors be placed 
under ground, that but one conduit shall 
be permitted. Inasmuch as the first part 
of the section speaks of one or more 
systems, which means an unlimited 
number of systems, the proviso just men- 
tioned speaking of "said system" may be 
construed as referring to any one of the 
numerous systems of underground con- 
ductors, which the first part of the section 
empowers the company to erect and main- 
tain. Under this construction of the ordi- 
nance, which is entirely consistent with its 
language, the company would have the 
power to maintain one underground con- 
duit for each of its systems of underground 
electrical conductors. 

Another proviso in the same section lim- 
its the number of overhead systems in 
that portion of the city south of Thirty- 
ninth street and west of State street to four 
such systems. There is no limitation in 
Section 1 to the number of overhead sys- 



November 20,]

[1893 



terns in that portion of the city north of 
Thirty-ninth street and east of State street, 
so that under this section said company 
would have the right to string an unlimited 
number of wires in the portion of the city 
just mentioned, which includes a large 
portion of the down town district. 

There is a provision at the end of Section 
12 which says: "No poles shall be used 
north of Forty- seventh street, east of Hal- 
sted street, but all wires north of said 
Forty- seventh street and east of said Hal- 
sted street shall be placed underground." 
This provision just quoted conflicts with 
the provision ot Section 1, which provides 
that south of Thirty-ninth street and west 
of State street the company may maintain 
four systems of overhead electrical con- 
ductors. The contradiction between those 
two provisions makes a vital portion of the 
ordinance so uncertain that it is sure to 
lead to endless litigation. 

It has been my understanding that the 
object of the ordinance in question was to 
give said company authority to maintain a 
system of electrical conductors only in that 
portion of the city lying south of Thirty- 
ninth street and west of State street, and 
to exclude therefrom that portion of the 
city lying north of Thirty-ninth street and 
east of State street. If that was the object 
of the ordinance it singularly fails in ex- 
pressing the intention of the Council. 

The transmission of powerful currents 
through aerial conductors is dangerous to 
life and property, and it is a well estab- 
lished fact that conductors to carry such 
currents can be placed in underground con- 
duits in a manner entirely satisfactory and 
without danger to life or property. 

It is the established policy of the City of 
Chicago not to allow any additional over- 
head wires, and to change those now in ex- 
istance to underground conductors wher- 
ever feasible. The ordinance under con- 
sideration is in violation of such policy. 

So far as underground conductors are 
concerned, the ordinance is capable of a 
construction which would permit the com- 
pany to establish several systems of under- 
ground conduits. No provision is made by 
the ordinance limiting the number of times 
the streets and alleys of the city may be 
torn up for the purpose of laying such un • 
derground conductors. 

The company is required whenever it shall 



open any street, alley or public way, or in- 
terfere with any sewer, pipe, cable or con- 
duit therein, to forthwith restore the same 
to as good condition as before such open- 
ing, disturbance or interference. The ex- 
perience of the past teaches that companies 
having the power to tear up streets do not, 
as a general rule, restore the same to as 
good condition as before such opening. 
The company in this case may cause unlim- 
ited damage by the wholesale tearing up of 
streets. The ordinance provides for the 
execution of a bond in the penal sum of 
twenty-five thousand dollars, "Conditioned 
to indemnify and save harmless the City 
of Chicago from all damages, which may 
be occasioned, or arise, or grow out of the 
exercise by said company of any of the 
rights or privileges hereby granted." It 
also provides for a deposit of one thousand 
dollars, and that such deposit shall be kept 
up to the sum of one thousand dollars dur- 
ing the life of the franchise. 

I am of the opinion that the security pro- 
vided by the ordinance is not adequate. 

Another very serious objection to this 
ordinance is, that it does not provide any 
compensation to the city and the public for 
the privilege granted and the inconvenience 
which the public is necessarily subjected 
to by the exercise of the powers attempted 
to be conferred by the ordinance. When- 
ever the city interferes with private prop- 
erty for the purpose of establishing a public 
improvement a condemnation proceeding is 
necessary in which the city is always marie 
to pay the highest market value for the 
property taken or damaged. When a 
private corporation seeks to obtain pecun- 
iary benefits by an interference with the 
convenient use of the streets and public 
places of the city, 1 see no reason why it 
should not pay the city for the benefits it 
obtains. The streets, and especially those 
in the central portion of the city, are 
already filled with pipes, sewers and con- 
duits. There is little room for more. I 
consider it of the greatest importance that 
the city should be economic in the disposi- 
tion of the limited space now remaining 
under our pavements, and very careful in 
granting further privileges of this char- 
acter. That underground space, by reason 
of its scarcity, has become extremely valu- 
able. It may be needed in the future for 
more important, more beneficial uses, it

should not be given away without adequate 
compensation. 

If it is the desire of the Council to permit 
this company to place and maintain both 
underground and aerial conductors. in ac- 
cordance with the spirit of this ordinance, 
certain provisions should be ingrafted 
therein for the care and protection of life 
and property. All tubes, subways and 
manhole chambers used in connection with 
said conduit systems should be of such 
material and construction, and should be 
maintained in such condition as to prevent, 
as far as possible, the leakage into them of 
explosive gases; and all manhole chambers 
should be ventilated so as to prevent the 
accumulation in them of explosive gases. 
Before the issuance of a permit by the 
Commissioner of Public Works for the 
placing of conduits, applications and plans 
approved by the Superintendent of City 
Telegraph, should be filed with the Com- 
missioner of Public Works showing in- 
ground plans and cross section the size, 
number and location of the pipes, subways, 
sewers and manhole chambers which they 
desire to place in the streets; and also the 
size, number and location of the pipes, sub- 
ways, sewers and manhole chambers lo- 
cated in and along the streets an d cross 
streets at intersections at the time of appli- 
cation. 

Bef >re the issuance of a permit by the 
Commissioner of Public Works for the 
placing of poles and aerial conductors, ap- 
plications and plans should be filed with 
said Commissioner showing the size, num- 
ber and location of poles, cross arms, 
fixtures, cables and wires to be placed on 
the streets or alleys; and the number, size 
and location of poles, cross arms, fixtures, 
cables and wires mentioned on the streets 
or cross streets at the time of application. 

For the reasons stated I cannot approve 
the ordinance, as submitted for my consid- 
eration, and herewith return it with my 

veto. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Geo. B. Swift, 
Actina Mayor. 

Aid. Noble moved that the vote by which 
f.he ordinance referred to in the veto mes- 
sage was passed be reconsidered. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Noble moved that the ordinance be 
placed on file. 

The motion prevailed. 



In connection with the foregoing Aid.

Chicago, Nov. 11, 1893. 

Chas D. Gastfield, City Clerk, City : 

Dear Sir— 1 have the honor to transmit

The committee immediately entered upon 
the discharge of its duty, and conducted 
such work with great enthusiasm and rare 
judgment. The program adopted by this 
committee was fully carried out and exe- 
cuted, and culminated in the grandest exhi- 
bition ever witnessed at any exposition, 
and was the largest and most conspicuous 
civic celebration that the world has ever 
seen. 

The directory is not unmindful of the 
fact that the adoption of such resolution is, 
and was intended to be an expression by 
the City Council, of confidence and en- 
couragement in the work of preparation 
for, and administration of the Exposition, 
realizing as we do that except for the sup- 
port of the citizens of this city, the suc- 
cessful issue of the Exposition could not 
have been attained; and for the earnest and 
intelligent work of the committee, we 
hereby give expression of our obligation 
and grateful appreciation; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the foregoing minute be 
spread upon the records, and a certified 
copy thereof, signed by the President, and 
attested by the corporate seal, be trans- 
mitted to the City Council and to the mem- 
bers of said committee. 

I, Howard O. Edmonds, Secretary of the 
World's Columbian Exposition, hereby 
certify that the above is a true and correct 
copy of preambles and resolution adopted 
by the Board of. Directors of the World's 
Columbian Exposition, at a meeting held 
on Friday, November 10th, 1893, and that I 
am the lawful custodian of the records of 
said Board of Directors.

poration this eleventh day of November,

nual report of the Chicago Relief and Aid 
Society, which was 

Placed on file. 

The Clerk presented the following com- 
munication from the Board of Election 
Commissioners: 

Chicago, Nov. 20, 1893. 

To Chan. D. Gastfield, City Clerk: 

Dear Sir— The proposition to annex 
the village of Norwood Park having been 
carried at the last election, will, I suppose 
entitle the voters of that village to vote for 
Mayor at the coming special election. It 
is customary in newly annexed territory to 
have two days of registration. The first 
registration day for Norwood Park will be 
November 28, one week from to-morrow. 
In order that everything may be properly 
done, I think it would be well if the Coun- 
cil could decide to-night, or at the latest 
next Monday night, to what ward of the 
city the newly annexed village shall be 
added. 

Respectfully, 

Wm. A. Taylor. 

In connection with the foregoing Aid. 
Conway presented a draft of an ordinance 
providing that the late annexed village of 
Norwood Park be attached to and incor- 
porated as a part of the Twenty-seventh 
Ward, and moved that the same, together 
with the communication from the Board of 
Election Commissioners, be referred to the 
Committee on Elections. 

Aid. McGillen moved that the same be 
referred to the Committee on Judiciary. 

The motion was lost. 

The subject matter was thereupon re- 
ferred to the Committee on Elections.

following report:

To the Honorable, the Citu Council : 

Gentlemen— In response to your order 
of October 23, for a report from this depart- 
ment in regard to the state of the litigation 
between the city and the Chicago and 
JNorthwestern Kailroad Company, in rela- 
tion to the opening of Homan avenue 
across the right of way of the latter, I beg 
to report: 

That a condemnation proceeding was in- 
stituted several years ago (Case No. 77.533 
in the Circuit Court); that pending this 
case the railroad company procured a teni- 



November 20,]

porary injunction against the city from 
prosecuting this condemnation suit or tak- 
ing possession thereunder; that this suit 
was tried in the Chancery Court, and the 
petition of the railroad company for a per- 
petual injunction was denied, but the 
court entered an order continuing the tem- 
porary injunction pending the appeal of 
the case, which was taken by the railroad 
company to the Supreme Court. The case 
has been pending in the Supreme Court of 
this state ever since. Proper briefs were 
filed in behalf of the city, and this depart- 
ment has supposed at evtry term of court 
for the last three years that the matter 
would be adjudicated. The Judges of the 
Supreme Court have been communicated 
with and a decision has been sought from 
them, but without success. Nothing fur- 
ther can be done in the case until such time 
as the Supreme Court shall relieve the city 
from the restraint of this injunction. 
Respectfully submitted,

Corporation Counsel. 

Which was 

Placed on file. 

The Commissioner of Public Works sub- 
mitted the following communication : 

Department op Public Works, ) 
Chicago, Nov. 20, 1893. ) 

To the Honorable, the Mayor, and City 
Council: 

Gentlemen — There are many com- 
plaints coming to this Department that the 
sewers in what is knowU as the Woodlawn 
District become stopped because of acci- 
dents to pumping machinery or necessary 
repairs to the system. One party has al- 
ready begun suit against the city for $50,- 

000 on this account, and another is about 
to bring suit for a large amount. This dif- 
ficulty would be obviated if the ends of the 
sewers at Sixty-seventh street were con- 
nected with the system immediately south. 

1 am of the opinion that it is desirable to 
so connect, not only at Sixty- seventh street, 
but also wherever two or more systems ad- 
join. Such connections would make the 
systems interchangeable, and if an acci- 
dent happened to any one of the others, 
would give needed relief and prevent the 
flooding of basements. These connections 
could be so made as to take sewerage from 
adjoining systems only when it is abnorm- 
ally high, and need not act as a channel for 



the conveyance of it at ordinary times and 
under ordinary circumstances. The Bureau 
of Sewers has repeatedly recommended 
such interconnections, and 1 therefore 
deem it necessary to lay the matter before 
your Honorable Body, and ask that you re- 
fer the matter to the proper committee for 
thorough investigation, and, if deemed 
necessary and proper, that authority be 
given to make sufficient, connections be- 
tween the Woodlawn, Sixty-seventh and 
Seventy-third street systems. 

Respectfully submitted, 
H. J. Jones, 
Commissioner of Public Works.

Deputy Commissioner .

Referred to the Committee on Streets and 
Alleys, S. D. 

Aid. Madden arose to a question of per- 
sonal privilege, addressed the Council, pre- 
sented a communication, and moved that 
the same be read and published. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the communication: 

Chicago Nov. 20, 1893. 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and Alder- 
men in City Council Assembled : 

Gentlemen — Much has recently been 
said about the financial condition of the 
city, and attempts have been made to 
place the responsibility for the present 
shortage of funds on me, as Chairman of 
the Finance Committee. The absurdity 
of these attempts, and the motives which 
inspired them, must be apparent to every 
member of the Council; with the general 
public the case is different. They are 
doubtless not aware that the Chairman 
of the Finance Committee has nothing 
whatever to do with the expenditure of 
city funds, but that this duty is one with 
which the Mayor and Comptroller have 
to deal — that the Finance Committee and 
its Chairman take up such matters only 
as are referred to them by the Council, 
to which they report their findings. 

It has been said through the columns 
of a morning paper that in three years — 
three million ($3,000,000) dollars of the 
general fund has been used and that the 



November 20, J 



1158 



[1893. 



?ity has not now a penny of reserve 
fund. 

If this statement were not so ridiculous, 
it might well create alarm. 

It is a well-known fact that the city 
raxes are not collected until the year 
olio wing the making of each annual ap- 
propriation; that from the General Fund, 
amounting to* $3,600,000.00, we are 
obliged to pay our current bills; that 
were it not for this General Fund the 
city would , be obliged to issue scrip, 
which scrip could not be redeemed until 
one year from the date of issue. 

This General Fund is what may be 
termed the city bank account, from 
which we borrow pending the collection 
of taxes. 

As the taxes are collected from year to 
year the fund is replenished, and only 
used again to bridge over until collec- 
tions again begin. This fund is made up 
of unexpended balances, to the credit of 
different funds, not reappropriated . 

It might be well to note in this connec- 
tion that with an area of 194 square 
miles, and a population of 1,600,000 peo- 
ple, the total assessed valuation of prop- 
erty — real and personal — is but two hun- 
dred and forty-three million ($243,000,000) 
dollars, and that 2 per cent of this, or 
$4,860,000, will be the city's qnota for 
1894. That in the year 1873, when the 
population did not. exceed 350,000, and 
the entire area was embraced in the ter- 
ritory bounded by Lake Michigan, Ful- 
lerton avenue. Western avenue and Thir- 
ty-ninth, the assessed valuation was 
$312,000,000, and that of the territory 
since annexed $100,000,000. It will thus 
be seen that though our population has 
increased 1,250,000, our territory more 
than 110 miles, our expenses more than 
doubled ; that our receipts from real and 
personal property have decreased nearly 
one-half — though they have been largelj' 
increased from other sources; that as 
against a police force in 1873 of about 
600 we have in 1893 about 3,600, and so 
on through the list. Can we wonder un- 
der such circumstances that the city has 
not money to loan ? 



More than $500,000.00 of judgments 
have been diverted to, other uses without 
the consent of the Council, so it is said, 
and the money used for other purposes, 
and an attempt is again made to convey 
the idea that for this, too, I am respon- 
sible. When it is understood that these 
judgments are the accumulations of ten 
years— from 1883 to 1893— and that I 
have occupied the position of Chairman 
of the Finance Committee for six months, 
it will be readily seen that the object of 
the individual who wrote the article was 
not to state the truth, but rather to create 
a false impression among the public . 

When the appropriations for 1893 were 
made, it was estimated that receipts 
from miscellaneous sources — such as 
saloon and all other classes of licenses — 
would exceed those of 1893 by at least 
$350,000, and this amount was added to 
the available assets included in the appro- 
priation bill. 

Instead of $350,000 excess in the re- 
ceipts, they were $150,000 short. Thus 
it will be seen that $500,000 of a shortage 
is accounted for, the responsibility of 
which, I apprehend, no one will under- 
take to place on my shoulders. 

W^ith an addition of from 150 to 200 
miles to cur system of improved streets 
each year we are obliged to increase our 
street lighting facilities very materially. 
All this must be paid for, and as the 
annual appropriation for this purpose is 
based on the actual number of lamps in 
service, when it is made, it is readily seen 
that a legitimate shortage in this fund 
must occur every year. In 1892 it 
amounted to $100,000.00, which sum has 
been paid from the appropriation of 1893. 
This year the street lighting fund falls 
short $60,0i0.00, and the only way to 
prevent it is to stop putting new lamps 
iuto service — a thing which should not 
for a moment be thought of. Then comes 
a shortage of $80,000.00 in the street 
lamp repair shops, caused by a failure of 
the department to report the item in their 
estimates of expense for the year. As a 
result of this failure to report the matter 
never came to the attention of the 



November 20, 



1159 



[1893. 



Finance Committee, in consequence of 
which no appropriation for its mainten- 
ance was made. The work of this de- 
partment was indispensable, and the 
Comptroller has continued to pay the 
bills, as he clearly had the right to do. 

The expenses of the Election Com- 
missioners' office, over which we have 
no jurisdiction whatever, but for the bills 
of which the city is held responsible 
under the law, have exceeded the appro- 
priation $40,000.00, and for this, it is 
charged, I am to blame. 

Thus it will be seen frOm the foregoing 
that, independent of judgments, a short- 
age of $780,000 is accounted for in a 
legitimate way. Nothing is said of the 
condition of appropriations. To men- 
tion this would not serve the purpose for 
which the article in the newspaper before 
referred to, was written. 

It may be said, however, for the infor- 
mation of the Council and the public, 
that about $200,000 will remain unex- 
pended in the CityjjEngineer's Depart- 
ment— $75,000.00 in the Police Depart- 
ment and about $75,000.00 in the Fire 
Department, and that the expenditures 
in all other departments will come within 
the amounts set apart for their mainten- 
ance. It will thus be seen that the 
amount overestimated to be received 
from miscellaneous sources has been par- 
ticularly saved and the so-called shortage 
reduced by $350;000.00. 

The mysterious Fund " W" referred to, 
of which it is said no account has been 
given to the Mayor, consists of 6 per 
cent, added to all special assessments for 
street improvements, sewers, sidewalks, 
house drains, gas lamps, etc., from which 
is paid the salaries of street engineers, 
clerks in the Street Department, inspec- 
tors, clerks in the Special Assessment 
Bureau, attorney fees and court costs, 
from which it is approximately estimated 
there is an accumulation of $150,000.00 
for the year 1893, after all expenses are 
paid, but the exact, figures cannot be 
ascertained until the annual report of the 
County Treasurer is made of the amount 
collected on special assessments. This 



added to the city's resources reduces the 
shortage to an amount equal to the loss 
of revenue from miscellaneous sources, 
and leaves nothing to talk about except 
the gas bills, election office expenses and 
street lamp repair shops, which have 
already been explained. Even these 
items, I might add, will be reduced by 
the saving of $25,000.00 for public bene- 
fits on street improvements — not one 
dollar of which has or will be used . 

As to the so-called shortage in the 
"Water Fund, I wish to say that when, 
in 1889, I became a member of the Coun- 
cil, there was a surplus to the credit of 
this fund of upwards of $800,000.00. 
During that year annexation took place 
— after which heavy demands were made 
on the fund for the extension of water 
mains in the annexed districts, the build- 
ing of tunnels, etc., the result of which 
was that within one and one-half years 
after annexation the fund was short $1,- 
300,000. Something had to be done t» 
save it from ruin — to prevent the laying 
of water pipes in districts from which no 
revenue was received. I prepared an 
ordinance — the Council passed it — the 
necessary relief was afforded thereby, 
but we had to provide for the indebted- 
ness, which we did by authorizing the 
issuance of 2,000,000 of water certificates, 
pledging the revenues of the water bureau 
to meet them as they became due; $1,- 
400,000 of these certificates were issued; 
$667,000 have been paid. We have up- 
ward of $400,000.00 on hand to meet the 
$833,000 now due and the receipts of the 
Water Department between this and 
December 31st will be sufficient to pay 
all outstanding certificates and leave a 
small balance to the credit of the fund. 

It must be remembered that we are 
constantly increasing our water supply 
to meet the needs of the increased popu- 
lation of the city and that we are now at 
work on a tunnel in the Hyde Park Dis- 
trict, one in Lake View, and that this 
summer alone $350,000.00 was expended 
for large water mams with which to 
supply the people of Roseland, Kensing- 
ton and West Pullman in the southern

end of the city and tbe people of the 
northwest, including Jefferson, or what 
is now known as the Twenty -seventh 
ward. A liberal measure of "credit is 
due to Superintendent of Police Brennan, 
Chief Swenie of the Fire Department, 
and Commissioner of Public Works 
Jones, for the able and conservative 
manner in which their departments have 
been conducted, on account of which the 
savings referred to have been made pos- 
sible. 

It will be apparent to every unpreju- 
diced person that no cause for alarm 
exists and that with strict economy suffi- 
cient saving can be made in all depart- 
ments to wipe out the judgment defi- 
ciency during the coming year — though 
it has taken many years to create it.

Chicago, Nov. 25, 1893. 
To the City Council, City: 

Gentlemen — An ardent desire to attend 
the World's Fair to be given at Antwerp, 
Belgium, and understanding that you are 
familiar with all points in the matter is 
the reason 1 write you . 

I have been working at the World's Fair, 
Chicago, for the Electric Scenic Theatre 
Co., and other concessions. I have had 
considerable business experience. Am 23 
years of age, and would like to engage 
with some one here to attend to an exhibit 
of something of that kind at the above 
mentioned fair, and would like you to give 
me the name of some one to whom I can 
present myself for that purpose. 

I have in my possession some very good 



references, and can furnish a bond if nec- 
essary. 

Trust you will give this your attention, 
and begging your pardon for monopolizing 
your time with such a matter, I am, 
Yours very respectfully, 

E. E. Brinkley. 

P. S.— If you cannot give me the infor- 
mation please notify me. Address me as 
above. 

Which was 

Referred to the Committee on World's 
Fair. 

The Clerk presented the following com- 
munication : 

Chicago, Nov. 15, 1893. 
To the Honorable Mayor and City Coun~' 
cilof the City of Chicago; also, to the 
Committee on Railroads, of said Coun* 
oil: 

Gentlemen — An amendment to an ordi* 
nance passed by your Honorable Body on 
the 21st day of March, 1892, has been pre- 
sented, in which it is suggested that said 
amendment shall give the North Chicago 
Street Railroad Company, and also the 
West Chicago Street Railroad Company 
the right to carry electric wires overhead, 
as well as underground. 

This amendment was referred to the 
Committee on Railroads, and at the meet- 
ing of said committee it was resolved to 
ask that the said amendment should be 
placed on file. 

Before doing so, I would respectfully re- 
quest that I be permitted to appear before 
the committee, and explain the reasons for 
offering the amendment. It is the sincere 
desire of both the aforementioned compa- 
nies to give to the public the best facilities 
for travel that can be obtained, and to 
spend for such improvements whatever 
money is necessary that the latest shall be 
used, and that nothing will be omitted to 
give perfect communication between the 
different parts of our city. 

The North Chicago Street Railroad Com- 
pany has very thoroughly tested the prac- 
ticability of underground lines for electric 
railroads, and has developed the fact that 
in this climate it is not practicable to use 
them in winter time. The lines we now 
have on the North Side were not run dur- 



November 27, J 



1196 



[1893. 



ing the whole of last winter, for the reason 
mentioned. 

It is not the desire of our companies to 
run overhead wires in the heart of the city, 
even had we permission to do so. It seems 
to me that if the committee of your Hon- 
orable Body having the subject in charge, 
would kindly give the representatives of 
the North and West Side roads an oppor- 
tunity to appear before it, the same might 
result in a better understanding of the sub- 
ject than I have given here. 

Very respectfully yours, 

Chas. T. Yerkes, 

President. 
Which was 

Referred to the Committee on Railroads. 

The Clerk presented the following com- 
munication from the City of Elgin:

Chicago, Nov. ,27, 1893. ) 

To the Honorable, the Mayor, and City 
Council: 

Gentlemen — In response to an order 
passed by your Honorable Body November 
13th last to inform the Council why the 
Chicago & South Side Rapid Transit Kail- 
road Company does not light the intersect- 
ing streets and alleys with its right of way ,1 
enclose herewith a copy of a communica-

Respectfully submitted, 

H. J. Jones, 
Commissioner of Public Works. 



Chicago, Nov. 22, 1893. 
D. S. Mead, Esq., Secretary Department 

of Public Works, Chicago: 

Dear Sir— Your favor of the 20th inst, 
enclosing copy of an order passed by the 
City Council November 13th last, directing 
the Commissioner of Public Works to re- 
port why the Chicago & South Side Rapid 
Transit Railroad Company does not light 
the intersection of streets and alleys with 
its right of way, is received. 

An examination of the ordinances passed 
by the City Council granting franchises to 
the Chicago & South Side Rapid Transit 
Railroad Company, being three in number; 
one passed April 26th, 1888; the second 
passed April 2d, 1892; and the third and 
last, passed April 7th, 1892, will show that 
there is no provision whatever requiring 
our railroad company to light the intersec- 
tion of streets and alleys with its right of 
way. This order must have been passed 
under a misapppehension as to the pro- 
visions of our ordinances. 

It is the desire of this company to comply 
in all respects with the requirements of its 
ordinances, and we will be pleased to hear 
from the City Council what proyision of 
the ordinances was in contemplation at the 
time said order was passed. We have 
hunted in vain for any such provision. 

Very truly yours, 

{Signed) M. Hoi'kins, 

General Manager.

son, the Water Assessor, which will ex- 
plain themselves. 

1 have given instructions to the assessor 
to have surveys made in every case where 
water service pipes are ordered before 
making his return for the assessment, 
which will do away to a very large extent 
with the complaints of having assessments 
made where the work is already done. 
The fact of having no records of services 
laid in the newly annexed portions of the 
city, has been the fruitful cause of a large 
majority of the errors which have unfortu- 
nately crept in, especially during the past 
few years, owing to the fact that such an 
enormous amount of work has been or- 
dered and completed during that period. 

I have also forwarded to Mr. Sheahan a 
letter (a copy of which is herewith enclosed) 
which 1 hope will have the effect of doing 
away with a very large majority of the 
clerical errors. I am fully convinced that 
the water assessor should have a bright 
and competent assistant to relieve him of a 
portion of this detail work, and as soon as 
the proper party can be found I propose to 
transfer him to that department. With 
these changes I am confident that there 
will hereafter be but little, if any, cause for 
complaint. 

Yours very truly, 

H. J. Jones, 
Commissioner of Public Works. 

Department of Public Works,) 
Chicago, October 27, 1893. $ 

To J. S. Sheahan, Esq., Supt. of Special 
Assessments : 

Dear Sir— The large number of tax 
sales for special assessments for 'water 
service pipes, and other improvements, 
which had already been made by the 
owners of the property sold, forces the con- 
clusion that a vast amount of carelessness 
has been displayed, as there can be no 
reason for such neglect and consequent loss 
to innocent parties. 

in order to prevent repetition of these er- 
rors, hereafter all penalties arising from 
the neglect of any employe will be charged 
to the party at fault, and be deducted from 
his salary. Will you please inform the 
various parties interested of the above order. 

Very truly yours, 
(Signed) H. J. .Jones, 

Commissioner of Public Works. 



Department of Public Works, > 
Chicago, Sept. 18, 1893. ) 

To the Honorable, H. J. Jones, Commis- 
sioner of Public Works: ♦ 

Dear Sir— In reply to the communica- 
tion herewith of the Hon. M. B. Madden, 1 
beg leave to state that for the last two years 
1 have worked assiduously to inaugurate 
some system by which the errors referred 
to could be avoided, but until the last week 
1 have met with no success. 

A short time ago the co-operation of your 
honorable assistant was extended to me 
and now I have in vogue a system of re- 
ceipts between the water assessor's office 
and this bureau whereby the errors of not 
cancelling an assessment, when the water 
assessor issues and delivers to us his certi- 
ficate, can be definitely located and properly 
treated. This system, if not eradicating 
the evil, will at least place someone di- 
rectly responsible for the blunder and the 
expense. 

As to the making of unnecessary assess- 
ments I can only state that the assess- 
ments for water service pipes are 
based solely upon the report of the 
water assessor, who sends to this 
office a schedule of the lots, blocks, etc., 
into which water service pipes are to be 
laid. These schedules are made prior to 
any inspection as to where the pipes are 
actually needed, and I have tried time and 
time again, in view of the many errors, to 
have an inspection made first and then the 
assessment made on an actual and correct 
schedule of the property requiring the 
pipes, but this plan was not allowed to 
prevail. If a person is assessed for a pipe, 
and he has one already in his lot, upon his 
reporting the fact to the water assessor, 
and is found to be so, then the water assess- 
or should issue a certificate to us cancel- 
ling the item, and if we fail to cancel it, 
the fault is ours and we should suffer. But 
if the water assessor tells the party that he 
will cancel it and marks it cancelled upon 
his book, giving date, etc., and fails to de- 
liver us a certificate for same, and the prop- 
ertv is sold, then the error should be 
charged to some department other than 
this. But I am sorry to say we stand the 
brunt of all errors of all kinds that in any 
way have a connection with special assess- 
ments. The clerks in this office handling 
this matter of water service pipes are thor- 
oughly alive to the fact, that for any error 



November 27,] 



1213 



[1893. 



they make, causing loss to the city, they 
will be held responsible. 

The volume of business done with the 
private drain department of the sewer de- 
partment is equal to that done with the 
water service pipe department, and I have 
no trouble with it and I am only too glad to 
state that 1 cannot recall a single error dur- 
ing the last year, and of all the claims oc- 
casioned by errors recently referred to the 
Finance Committee in the matter of water 
service pipes not one of them can justly be 
charged to this particular department. 

I am greatly mortified that it has been 
found necessary by the Honorable, the Fi- 
nance Committee, to refer to this depart- 
ment as being unbusinesslike in the per- 
formance of its labors, but 1 am equally as 
well pleased at the fact that the facts in 
the matter relieve us from all censure. 
I am, sir, most respectfully, 

J. S. Shkahan, 
Supt. of Special Assessments. 

Department of Public Works, ) 
Chicago, Sept. 16, 1893. ) 

Hon, H. J. Jones, Commissioner of Pub- 
lic Works : 

Dear Sir— 1 have been shown your let- 
ter to Mr. Sheahan in reference to special 
assessments for water service pipes, reflect- 
ing, I think, very severely on the Assessors' 
Sub Department of the water office, when 
we take into consideration the means by 
which these assessments are made. 

In the first place we have no record of 
the pipes put in either in the Old Town of 
Lake, Hyde Park, Lake View or Jefferson 
prior to their annexation to the city, and 
when an assessment is ordered it is always 
in as great a hurry as possible, conse- 
quently we have no opportunity to go over 
the ground and make an examination be- 
fore we report, therefore we have to make 
tracings from the County Records or 
Atlases and assess every lot or part of lot 
abutting on the line of street ordered, de- 
pending entirely on the people who already 
have a supply, to respond to the notices 
sent out by the Special Assessment Depart- 
ment for our necessary information, so that 
we can release them from the assessment. 
These notices, in a great many cases, they 
pay no attention to, and the matter runs on 
until we get the necessary examination 
made, or when a contract is let we discover 



who has the water, or otherwise. Now 
the only remedy 1 know of is that when a 
street is ordered for improvement we 
must have men and means to 
make a preliminary examination before 
reporting the assessment. If any one can 
point out any other method of overcoming 
the difficulty, I should be very glad to avail 
myself of it. 

Our force has been cut down during the 
present year, especially in our laboring 
gang, that we have not men enough to 
come anywhere near performing the labor 
required in making the necessary examina- 
tion, and the supervision of all this work, 
together with pipe extensions and my 
regular duties of water assessor, falls on 
me, while the Honorable Financial Com- 
mittee thought proper to reduce my salary 
to an equality with the principals of the 
small branch offices of Lake and Hyde 
Park. Hereafter I shall adopt the plan of 
examining every street and return no as- 
sessment, except where the main pipes are 
laid and on lots not supplied unless other- 
wise ordered. 

Very respectfully, 

Thos. Pattisox, 

Water Assessor.

Chicago, Dec. 5, 1893. 

To the Honorable, the City Council, of

The Board of West Chicago Park Com- 
missioners respectfully- represents unto 
your Honorable Body that it is an incorpo- 
ration organized under the laws of the State 
of Illinois for the purpose of maintaining 
and improving the parks and boulevards for 
the use and benefit of the inhabitants of the 
Town of West Chicago. 

That the said West Chicago Park Com- 
missioners on Oct. 30, A. D. 1893, was in- 
debted to the City of Chicago for water used 
by it from October 8th, 1892, to October 30th, 
1893. 

Your petitioner further represents that 
said water was used by said West Chicago 
Park Commissioners for municipal pur- 
poses in maintaining said parks and boule- 
vards for the benefit of the public. 

Your petitioner further represents that 
the taxes received by it for the maintenance 
and improvement of said parks and boule- 
vards is wholly inadequate. And your pe- 
titioner further represents that in October, 
1885, by virtue of several ordinances duly 
passed by your Honorable Body, the con- 
trol of Union, Jefferson, Vernon and 
Wicker Parks was transferred from the 
City of Chicago to your petitioner, the West 
Chicago Park Commissioners, and by divers 
ordinances since that time duly passed by 
your Honorable Body, Washington boule- 
vard. Ashland boulevard, W. Twelfth Street 
boulevard, Ogden Avenue boulevard and 
Jackson boulevard have passed into the 
control of said West Chicago Park Ccm- 
missioners. And your petitioner further 
represents that said parks and boulevards 
have since that time been maintained and 
improved by said West Chicago Park Com- 
missioners without cost, charge or expense 
to the City of Chicago. 

Therefore your petitioner respectfully 
urges your Honorable Body to rebate the 
water rates charged by the City of Chiciago 
to said West Chicago Park Commissioners 
for the last year; and inasmuch as the 
water used by the West Chicago Park Com- 
missioners is for public use and benefit, it 
respectfully petitions the passage of the an- 
nexed ordinance. 
West Chicago Park Commissioners.

Department of Public Works, ) 
Chicago, Dec. 18, 1893. S 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and City 
Council: 

Gentlemen— In pursuance of an order 
passed by your Honorable Body December 
11th last, I herewith submit an ordinance 
repealing an ordinance for the opening of 
Sixtieth street, from State street to Went- 
worth avenue. The ordinance for the 
opening of this street was passed January 
27, 1890, and a verdict rendered to pay for 
land to be taken for the proposed opening 
January 16, 1891. The property thus con- 
demned has been useless to the owners 
thereof ever since. They cannot make 
any improvements thereon or dis- 
pose of it by sale. Assessments have 
been made to collect the amount 
necessary to pay for the land to be- 
taken and every one of them have been re- 
pealed with the exception of the one now 
in the hands of the Commissioners which 
will be filed in court in a few days. This 
one is now ordered annulled through the 
order to repeal the ordinance. I beg leave 
to submit that this constant making of as- 
sessment rolls and the annulling of the 
same has put this Department to an ex- 
pense and loss of two thousand ($2,000.00) 
dollars in this matter alone. A number of 
people interested in the opening of this 
street have called for the purpose of having 
the matter pushed to completion so they 
could get their money and with it 
purchase a home somewhere else. I 
would respectfully request that if 



this order to repeal is insisted upon, 
that the whole matter be referred to 
a committee and there to be settled, so that 
this Department may be relieved of the 
onus of further expense and delay. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. J. Jones, 

Commissioner of Public WorUs. 

ORDINANCE 

Repealing an ordinance for the opening of 
Sixtieth street, from State street to Went- 
worth avenue. 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the 
City of Chicago: 

Section 1. That the ordinance entitled 
"An ordinance for the opening of Sixtieth

nue," passed January 27, A. D. 1890, be

Sec. 2. That the Corporation Coun- 
sel be and he is herebv directed to have the 
judgment in this case, No. 82957 in the 
Circuit Court, set aside and vacated, the

cause stricken from the docket of said 
court.

from and after its passage. 

ALSO,

His Honor Acting Mayor Swift submitted

Correction for the week ending December

The Corporation Counsel submitted a re- 
port of his Department from April 15, 1893, 
to date, which was 

Ordered published and placed on file. 

The following is the report: 

Law Department, 
Office of the Counsel to the Corporation 
Chicago, Dec, 24, 1893, 



>n, [ 



To the Honorable, the Mayor, and the 
City Council of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— Having resigned my posi- 



December 27,1 



1334 



[1893 



' 



tion, I respectfully submit the following 
report. 

In the various courts there are now pend- 
ing 376 cases over which the Corporation 
Counsel has sole charge. On the 15th day 
of April, 1893, when I took charge of this 
office, there were pending 391 cases; 53 
cases have been commenced in which the 
city is a party since said date and 68 cases 
have been disposed of as follows : 

Cases in Chancery 35 

Cases in Supreme Court 14 

Cases in Appellate Court 3 

Cases at Common Law 16 

In the disposed of cases at law the 
amount sought to be recovered against the 
city was $205,000; amount actually recov- 
ered by litigants was $7,400, of which 
amount, however, $3,500 was recovered 
under a stipulation entered into by the pre- 
ceding administration, and the balance 
consists mainly of cases settled by order of 
the Finance Committee. 

The city has a claim for reimbursement 
for nearly all of this amount against rail- 
road companies. Every contested case 
tried since I organized the office was won 
by the city. 

Every preliminary injunction against the 
city obtained since April 15th was promptly 
dissolved. There is no injunction in force 
against the city obtained during my term 
of office. A number of preliminary injunc- 
tions against the city issued prior to April 
15, 1893, some of them of long standing, 
were dissolved on motion of the city since 
said date. I call attention to the following: 

In the case of the Pittsburg, Ft. Wayne 
& Chisago Railroad Company against the 
city, the city was restrained from interfer- 
ing with the company, which desired to 
maintain a large number of tracks across 
Fifty-first street and Stewart avenue. This 
case was heard and decided adversely to 
the railroad company both in the Circuit 
and Appellate Courts. The success of the 
city in that case places it in a peculiarly 
advantageous position in its effort to com- 
pel the Pennsylvania Company to elevate 
its tracks. 

The city has now the undoubted right to 
tear up the tracks of the Pennsylvania 
Company laid under cover of said injunc- 
tion. No action has been taken in that di- 
rection, pending negotiations for the eleva- 
tion of the tracks. The company, however, 



has agreed to remove said tracks on de- 
mand. 

The injunction obtained by the North 
Chicago Street Railway Company during 
the last administration, restraining the city 
from interfering with the company in its 
use of Belgian and gas motors, was dis- 
solved on final hearing. The Appellate 
Court, after a full hearing, denied the mo- 
tion of the Railway Company for an order 
continuing the injunction iu force. 

There were other injunctions dissolved, 
but as they do not involve any question of 
public interest, I do not call special atten- 
tion to them. Applications for mandamus 
against the city in license cases were made, 
but none granted. 

It has been the policy of this department 
not to issue permits to any corporation that 
fails to carry out its obligations to the city. 
This applies to corporations tearing up 
streets, as well as railroad companies. 
This policy ought to be followed up. It 
has caused some of the companies, which 
necessarily, in order to transact their busi- 
ness, have to tear up the streets, to comply 
with the demand of the city, namely, to pay 
to the city a sufficient amount to enable it 
to place the streets torn up by said compa- 
nies in perfect condition without charge to 
the tax-payers. The amount required for 
that purpose by the Street Department is 
over $500,000, which said companies will 
now have to furnish. 

Suits have been commenced against the 
Western Indiana Railroad Company, and 
no permits of any kind issued to it. A full 
investigation should be made of this road's 
right of way, a work which I had not the 
time to complete. I find that this corpora- 
tion has tracks on Fourth avenue, between 
Twelfth and Fourteenth streets, without 
even a pretended authority, except as to its 
most easterly track; it also admits that it 
is a squatter on the following described 
school lands, to-wit: west half of south- 
west quarter of Section 22, 38, 13, and oc- 
cupies with its belt line about two rods of 
ground running across the said section. 

Those tracks should be removed without 
much ceremony, and I have no doubt that 
other places can be found where this com-' 
pany is a trespasser. A similar policy 
should be followed with all railroads which 
refuse to elevate their tracks. 

Eleven cases, six of which have been re- 






December 27,] 



1335 



[1893, 



cently commenced, are pending against 
the various railroad companies to compel 
them to reimburse the city for judgments 
recovered against and paid by it to the 
various property owners, whose property 
was damaged by reason of the construction 
of the various viaducts throughout the city. 
One of those cases, based on a judgment 
recovered by reason of the construction of 
the Western avenue viaduct, has been re- 
cently called before Judge Payne, evidence 
presented, and the case submittted to the 
court on briefs. The other cases will soon 
be reached and the department is prepared 
to present them. 

The Special Assessment Department is 
under charge of the Corporation Counsel 
The offices ot the Corporation Counsel are 
located on the south end of the building on 
the second floor; the Special Assessment 
Department on the north end of the build- 
ing, the distance of a block, and on the 
third floor. With the numerous duties the 
Corporation Counsel has to perform it be- 
comes almost impossible for him to super- 
intend that department properly. I recom- 
mend that the entire Law Department be 
placed on one floor in adjacent rooms. 
The Special Assessment Department 
has rendered better service than the 
city had a right to reasonably expect. 
There are very few mercantile or manu- 
facturing establishments in this city, 
whose business transactions during the 
year involve as much money as the busi- 
ness of the Special Assessment Department 
of the city. It amounts to from ten to 
fifteen million dollars per year. 

To enable the city properly to take care 
of this business the City Council has set 
aside for that Department the princely 
salary of $150 a month for the Chief Assist- 
ant and $100 a month for the assistants in 
that Department. Those positions are ex- 
cellent positions for young men who have 
ability to become good special assessment 
lawyers at the expense of the city, and as 
soon as they become efficient, to leave the 
city's employ and take up business against 
the city. The property owners as a rule 
combine, when they contest an assessment, 
and employ an attorney of experience and 
pay him a liberal fee. As a rule the lead- 
ing attorneys who appear for property 
owners in those cases are attorneys who at 
one time or another were educated at the 
expense of the city. I recommend that that 



Department be re organized and a fair com- 
pensation paid to the gentlemen in charge 
of that Department. 

In the Special Assessment Department it 
is necessary to employ real estate experts 
to defend the assessments in court. The 
fees of these experts have of late years in- 
creased to such an extent that they are not 
only unreasonable but outrageous. A real 
estate man, who will devote a week's time 
to earn a commission of $100, demands from 
$150 to $250 for coming into court and giv- 
ing his opinions as to values. I have found 
bills on file for as much as $1,500 for one 
witness in one case, and I am told that 
witnesses in times past have earned as 
much as $13,000 per annum for services 
rendered to the citv. There is enough of 
this class of work for the city to keep two 
or three real estate men busy constantly. 
I have made an arrangement under which 
1 pay them monthly, not to exceed $250 a 
month, thereby saving many thousand 
dollars a year. 

One of the most important and laborious 
duties imposed upon this office is that of 
furnishing opinions to the Council and the 
heads of various departments of the city 
government in respect to their powers un- 
der the law . To the discharge of this duty, 
which is one of great detail, my own time 
has been very largely, and that of one of 
my assistants almost exclusively, devoted. 
Questions of the greatest novelty and import- 
ance, requiring the most careful research, 
and the application of fundamental princi- 
ples to novel conditions are followed by 
those of the most petty character, so that 
during my brief term I have been com- 
pelled to give opinions, either written or 
verbal, upon almost every conceivable 
branch of the law. 

Practically every ordinance that has been 
before the Council during this term has 
been the subject of revision, or an opinion 
by this department. It is with what I con- 
ceive to be justifiable pride that I refer to 
the records of the office as evidence of 
what has been accomplished in this direc- 
tion. 

In closing this report it is but just to my 
able assistants to say that this office has 
been conducted since October on a smaller 
force than is provided for in the appropria- 
tion bill, and that to keep up with the work 
they often had to work for the city at night.

Thanking you gentlemen for the courtesy 
you have always shown me, 1 am 
Your obedient servant, 

Adolf Kraus, 

The Clerk presented communications 
from the Board of Education requesting 
concurrence of your Honorable Body in 
purchase of the following school sites, viz: 

School site on Thomas avenue, 141 feet 
north of Belmont avenue. 

School site on String street, 396.3 feet 
north of Eighteenth street. 

School site on Henry street, between 
Throop and Loomis streets, which Were 

Keferred to the Committee on Schools. 

Also, a communication requesting the 
concurrence of your Honorable Body in the 
erection of a 16-room building, with as- 
sembly hall, on Augusta street, near Noble 
street, which was 

Keferred to the Committee on Schools. 

The Clerk presented a communication 
signed by the Mayor, Comptroller and the 
Chairman of the Finance Committee, 
awarding the contract for city printing to 
the Chicago Mail, which was 

Keferred to the Committee on Finance. 

The Commissioner of Public Works sub- 
mitted a report with reference to location 
of a new pumping station within the dis- 
trict bounded by Kinzie and Twelfth 
streets, and Crawford avenue and Forty- 
eighth street, which was ordered published 
and 

Referred to the Committee on Finance. 

The following is the report: 

Department of Public Woeks, ) 
Chicago, Dec. 27, 1893. J 

To the Honorable, the Mayor, and City 

Council: 

Gentlemen— In accordance with an 
order of your Honorable Body, passed 
October 23 last, directing this Department 
to present plans and estimate for a new 
pumping station, I transmit herewith the 
report of the City Engineer on the subject. 

From this report it will be seen that be- 
fore a station can be located at the point 
named, it will be necessary to construct a 
new lake tunnel at an estimated cost of 
$1,218,000, as the present tunnels have no 
more capacity than the present stations de- 
mand. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. J. Jones, 
Commissioner of Public Works. 



Department of Public Works, ) 
Chicago, Dec. 15, 1893. S 

H. J. Jones, Esq., Commissioner of Pub- 
lic Works : . 

Dear Sir— On the 23d of October, 1893, 
the City Council passed the following or- 
der, viz.: 

"Ordered, That the Department of Pub- 
lic Works be and it is hereby directed to 
present plans and estimates for pumping 
station, with a capacity of not less than 
sixty to one hundred million gallons per 
every twenty-four hours, within the dis- 
trict bounded by Kinzie and Twelfth streets 
and Crawford avenue and Forty-eighth 
street west; with the further information as 
to whether or not such station could be 
supplied from the present lake tunnels, or 
either of them." 

In reply, I understand that the order con- 
templates preliminary estimates for suit- 
able pumping stations, with the necessary 
tunnels and equipment to provide an ade- 
quate supply of water to the western portion 
of the city, and, as will be seen from the 
accompanying estimate, a very large pro- 
portion of the cost of the work will be exr 
pended in tunnels and in lake work. 

I have taken the liberty of making the 
estimates in such a manner that two sta- 
tions may be supplied by the tunnels; one 
to be located about the center of the terri- 
tory described in the Council order, with a 
provision for branch tunnel to connect 
with the main tunnel, so that a station may 
be located in the future at comparatively 
small cost, to supply the northwest part of 
the city. 

From all the evidence we can obtain, the 
tunnel is located so as to avoid rock exca- 
vation, although it wi'l be necessary be- 
fore the final line is determined to make 
extensive surveys and borings to determine 
this matter. 

The intake is located four (4) miles from 
shore in Lake Michigan, from which two 
tunnels, each eight feet diameter, connect 
with the shore shaft— from which point a 
land tunnel ten feet in diameter is ex- 
tended inland about 15,000 feet, from which 
point two branch tunnels eight feet in 
diameter are proposed, to supply water to 
the pumping stations; each to have a 
capacity of not less than 60,000,000 gallons 
per twenty-four hours. 

I estimate the cost of this work as fol- 
lows: 

42,000 feet lake tunnels, 8 feet 
diameter, at $29.00 $1,218,000 00

I also respectfully call your attention to 
a report submitted to you, dated November 
17, 1893, wherein it is already shown that 
the present tunnels have not sufficient 
capacity to supplv the maximum demand 
of the present pumping plants, and the sta- 
tions proposed in this report cannot be 
supplied by any of the existing tunnels.

Aid. Kent moved that the same be pub-

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the report: 

Chicago, Dec. 26, 1893. 
TJie Hon. G-eo. B. Swift, Acting Mayor 
of Chicago. 

Sir— I have the honor to report as fol- 
lows regarding the examination made by 
me under your instructions, of the accounts 
of the city as kept in the Comptroller's of- 
fice and other -offices: 

In my first report to you under date of 
November 20th, the amount of outstanding 
judgments against the city was given as 
$590,945.66, besides interest. This was the 
amount shown by the face of the records 
in the Comptroller's office, but checking 
the account in detail 1 find that various 
payments, amounting in all to $44,867.82, 
have not been marked off as paid on the 
Comptroller's detailed record, leaving 
actually unpaid up to November 20th, 154 
items, amounting to $546,077.84, besides in- 
terest, which 1 have computed approxi- 
mately at $72,500.00. 

In addition to this, there are judgments 
for which appropriation was asked last 
spring, unsuccessfully, amounting to $196,- 
464.60, besides those since entered against 
the city, and the constantly accumulating 
interests and costs. The balance to the 
credit of judgment account on the Comp- 
troller's ledger to November 20th, was 
8497,514.93, being the difference between the 
total amount appropriated from 1888 to 
1893 inclusive. §965,148.00, and the total 
amount paid, $467,633.17. The difference 
between this and the face of the judgments 
unpaid, as shown above, is due principally 
to the fact that, owing to delay in payment, 
the payments on account of interest have 
been greater than the amounts appropriated 
for interest; also to the fact that $23,000 of 
the judgments still outstanding weie out- 
standing at the close of 1887, when the bal-

ance to the credit of judgment account was 
closed out into the General Fund. 

In response to your request to furnish 
you a statement of the amount of the cur- 
rent liabilities of the city and the resources 
available to meet the same, I regret to state 
that 1 find it. practically impossible to do 
so even approximately with any satisfac- 
tion to myself, or any confidence in the 
correctness of the figures submitted. The 
city's books are kept upon the same theory 
that they were when the total amount 
collectea and disbursed annually was less 
than a million dollars, and when a very 
few officials and clerks constituted the en- 
tire book-keeping force. At that time the 
Comptroller or book-keeper could make 
up from memory a list of unpaid bills and 
of the funds with which to meet them. 
]Sow they do not see the most of the bills 
until they come to them ready and pressing 
for payment,certifled by the heads of the dif- 
ferent departments, some of whom at least 
have very indefinite ideas either as to what 
unvouchered bills are still pending against 
their departments, or what amount will be 
required to run the department until the 
end of the year, or any other definite date. 
The statements submitted herewith are, 
therefore, given with great hesitation, and 
as showing simply that a large deficit cer- 
tainly exists, the actual amount of which 
may vary considerably from these esti- 
mates. 

One great cause of difficulty in presenting 
the accounts of the city in intelligible 
shape, is the fact that the tax levy of each 
year, from which the appropriations are 
supposed in theory to be paid, is not col^ 
lected until the following year. This is 
aggravated by the holding back of the 
money after its collection by both Town 
and County Collectors, so that the funds do 
not come into the City Treasury on the 
average for several months after they are 
paid in by the tax payers. This necessi- 
tates a constant borrowing from the col- 
lections of one year to meet the expenses 
of another year, and complicates the book- 
keeping to a great extent. If the theory 
were made to agree with the fact that the 
revenues out of which the expenditures of 
the present year are actually paid are the 
licenses and taxes collected during the 
present year, it would simplify matters 
greatly. 

Another serious difficulty is the fact that 



in most of the departments, as already in- 
timated, no provision is made for keeping 
account of the amount of outstanding and 
unpaid bills, or the amount payable from 
time to time on uncompleted contracts. 
A great many of the entries necessary for 
a complete statement of the city's fiinancial 
situation, which is supposed to be 
published in the Comptroller's annual 
report, are not made up until after the 
close of the year, and it is practically im- 
possible, even at this time, to estimate 
what the total of these entries will amount 
to. For instance, the balance to the credit 
of the Special Assessment and Deposit 
Fund in the treasury at the close of busi- 
ness December 23d, was $993,343.48; but a 
large amount of this should be transferred 
to the General Fund and placed to the 
credit of the Department of Public Works, 
being the amount, six per cent added to 
sundry assessments, to cover the cost of 
making, levying and collecting the same. 
One voucher has already been made in 
favor of the Department of Public Works, 
covering only a portion of the special as- 
sessments for 1892, and amounting to 
$270,258.59. I am advised by the Superin- 
tendent of Special Assessments that 
if vouchers were drawn for the 
total amount of costs embraced in 
assessments for 1892 and collected 
in 1893, it will probably amount 
to about as much more; but their seems to 
be no certainty that such a voucher will be 
made, and I have accordingly included in 
my estimates only the amounts above 
given. 

As a matter of fact there seems to be the 
greatest possible amount of uncertainty 
and lack of knowledge concerning the 
actual status of the special assessment 
fund. Not only is it uncertain how much 
is due to the general fund for expenses and 
costs, but there seems to be an appalling 
amount of ignorance concerning the 
amount due the contractors for work al- 
ready done; amount payable on completion 
of work in progress; the amounts received 
on assessments on which nothing is yet 
payable to contractors, or the amount of 
rebates due parties who have already paid 
their assessments in cases where the work 
is completed. I can see nothing whatever 
in the nature or extent of the work in this 
department to prevent this information be- 
ing available at all times, if the proper 



December 27,]

[1898. 



system were adopted and vigorously car- 
ried out. 

I find that some time ago the unpaid re- 
bates scattered through a large number of 
old books in the special assessment office, 
were copied off into one large book cov- 
ering several hundred pages and many 
thousand items. This book was sent 
down to the Comptroller's office and 
these items as called for are paid 
there. But comparatively few of them have 
been claimed or paid, and the book has never 
been footed, so that nobody knows how 
much these old rebates amount to, or how 
much has been paid on account of them. 
All receipts ot all kinds from special as- 
sessments have been credited to this ac- 
count, and all payments of all kinds debited 
to it since the books were opened after the 
fire in 1871, and what this credit balance 
* consists of or to whom it belongs is not 
known. A separate account is kept in the 
Comptroller's office with each warrant, 
showing the amounts received and paid on 
account of each. These accounts number 
over 18,000 and fill a dozen ledgers of 800 
pages each, two accounts to a page; but 
they do not show how much is still payable 
on account of each warrant or to whom. 
A trial balance is never attempted to be 
taken from these ledgers, and if one were 
taken, it would probably not come any- 
where near the result shown by the general 
ledger account. These accounts could be 
so divided that the receipts and payments 
on account of each year's assessments 
could be kept separately, and these again 
subdivided into sections so that trial bal- 
ances could be taken and errors located 
and corrected. 

It appears that vouchers for 1889, 1890, 
1891 and 1892, aggregating $931,383.46, repre- 
senting the amounts payable from the 
General Fund to the Special Assessment 
Fund for "Public Benefits," being the pro- 
portion of sundry assessments payable by 
the city, remain still unpaid in the 
Comptroller's office. These must be 
paid at some time, and will deplete the 
General Fund to that extent, and increase 
the amount payable out of the Special As- 
sessment Fund. I find also that the vouch- 
ers made up each year for the excess or re- 
bate due the General Fund on special as- 
sessment warrants have been duly paid and 
passed to the credit of the General Fund. 
I do not see why the city any more than an 



individual should collect its rebates before 
it has paid its assessments. 

The total expenses of the Special Assess- 
ment Department for the seven years end- 
ing December 31, 1891, were $862,985.74. As 
the assessments are generally collected in 
the year following, 1 have set against this 
the total collections (including rebates and 
abatements) for the seven years ending 
December 31st, 1892, amounting to $28,830,- 
779.06, making the expenses 2.99 per cent of 
the collections. Of these expenses 1 per 
cent is the commission paid the County 
Collector. The lowest rate was 2.10 per 
cent for 1887 to 1889, and the highest 4.23 
per cent for 1891-92. If the practice of 
staying or appealing assessments, after the 
expense of making them has been incurred, 
could be abolished, 4 per cent would be 
ample instead of 6 per cent, as charged at 
present. 

I find that while an effort has been made 
to keep the various funds separate, there 
has been at various times, considerable bor- 
rowing and lending between the different 
funds, and that these loans have not all 
been repaid up to this date, although no 
evidence of the indebtedness of one fund 
to another exists upon the general ledger. 
Thus, the Comptroller's reports for 1890 and 
1891 show an excess of loans from the gen- 
eral fund to the school fund, over the re-pay- 
ments on account of same, of $25,000; and 
an excess of loans from the general fund to 
the water fund, over repayments, of $140,- 
000.00; also an unpaid loan from the gen- 
eral sinking fund to the water fund in 1889 
and 1890, of $50,000.00. I have included 
these balances as available resources of 
the general fund. 

As already explained, I shall not at- 
tempt at this time to give any statements 
showing the condition of the special assess- 
ment fund, and will give only an approx- 
imate estimate of the status of the ac- 
counts pertaining to the current opera- 
tions of the city government.

The following is the ordinance as passed: 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the

Section 1. That there shall be no meet-

[1893. 



ing of the City Council on Monday, Janu- 
ary 1, 1894, but the next regular meeting of 
the City Council, after the reguler meeting 
held December 27, 1893, shall be on Wednes- 
day, January 3, 1891, at 7:30 o'clock P. M. 

Sec. 2. This ordinance shall be in force 
from and after its passage. 

The Clerk administered the oath of of- 
fice to the incoming Mayor, John P. Hop- 
kins, who addressed the Council as fol- 
lows: 

Gentlemen of the Council— With 
deep appreciation of the solemnity of its pro- 
ceedings, this Council has taken proper ac- 
tion regarding the suddenly created 
vacancy in the Mayor's office. After an 
election in which the voters of Chicago 
manifested deep interest, it is my duty as 
Mayor- elect formally to enter upon the 
performance of the assigned task. This 1 
do with unaffected diffidence, but with 
resolute purpose to meet as far as lies 
within my power the demands of a situa- 
tion rendered more difficult because of wide- 
spread distress in commercial and indus- 
trial affairs. It is my aim to faithfully 
serve the City of Chicago, and to this end 
I sincerely and confidentially ask your 
counsel and assistance. 

The corporate authorities of Chicago are 
the Mayor and Common Council. Broadly 
defined their field is separate. With the 
Council lies the legislative duty; with the 
Mayor the task of executive work. But 
their relations and duties are closer than 
indicated by the line usually drawn. They 
so interweave and biend that they are prac- 
tically one. 1 am glad to recognize this 
unity and to appeal to it in behalf of that 
sentiment which is common to us all, pride 
ih Chicago's place among the great cities 
of the world and sincere desire to promote 
its well-being. 

One of our first duties is to perfect a 
business already entered upon through 
your direction whereby the finances of the 
city may be placed in absolute order. You 
are familiar with that requirement of the 
law under which the city is incorporated 
whereby the expenditures of the fiscal year 
must be regulated strictly in accordance 
with the provisions of the annual appropria- 
tion bill. Money is raised by the city for 
no other than a corporate purpose, and to 



divert funds thus raised to other than cor- 
porate purposes is manifestly to disregard 
the law in one of its essentials. In no sub- 
division of the city government is it proper 
that expenditures should exceed specific 
appropriations, and it is important, there- 
fore, that the exact condition of funds in 
the Treasury should be known at all times 
in order that the heads of departments may 
not be betrayed into excess of expenditure. 
The accounts of the Comptroller's office, 
wherein the condition of city finances, gen- 
eral and special, is shown, ought to be as 
clear, and simple, and easy of comprehen- 
sion as those of any great corporation, 
municipal or other. If this is not the con- 
dition of these accounts a remedy, it is 
obvious, must at once be applied. 

The city authorities are not permitted to 
increase appropriations save to meet an ex- 
traordinary situation, and then must pro- 
ceed in the manner pointed out by the law 
itself. The annual appropriation bill is 
the one guide of expenditure, and that jus- 
tice may be done the body of the people 
from whose earnings all the moneyed sup- 
port of the city government comes, econ- , 
omy must be rigidly practiced. We must 
gam favorable balances; not increase em- 
barrassing deficits. We must act entirely 
within the law, and so proceeding may 
place the money affairs of Chicago upon a 
sound business basis. 

It is for the Council to determine whether 
increasing distress, threatening a winter of 
extraordinary severity to the vast number 
of unemployed who are residents of Chi- 
cago, is not an emergency within the 
meaning of the law, and whether money 
may not be had for useful public work, to 
be expended advantageously through the 
employment of labor upon the streets and 
otherwise. 

I recommend the earliest possible adjust- 
ment of the money accounts between the 
city and the World's Columbian Exposi- 
tion. 

In an endeavor to redeem my promise to 
place the Police Department in such con- 
dition of efficiency that neither appoint- 
ment thereto nor promotion therein nor 
discharge therefrom shall be dependent 
upon party service, but shall be for merit or 
for cause only, I feel that I shall have your 
approval, for thereby the efficiency of the 
most numerous and of a highly important 
department of the civic government will be

advanced. Incompetents, drunkards, and 
men so little instructed in their duties or so 
unmindful of them as to trespass wantonly 
upon the personal rights of citizens guaran- 
teed by the Constitution and laws of Illi- 
nois must be dismissed from a force which 
can be made, and which I hope to aid in 
making, as model a department as the fire 
force. 

You are already engaged upon the im- 
portant business of relieving grade cross- 
ings of railways from the murder and 
menace to life and limb which are inevit- 
able and increasing incidents of such cross- 
ings. The work has the approval of this 
vast community. The railroad corpora- 
tions themselves realize the need of aban- 
doning old methods of transit in this popu- 
lous city. To attain results we must exer- 
cise patience, but where human life is daily 
sacrificed patience will not be a virtue un- 
less it is accompanied by persistence. 
When the managers of railway corpora- 
tions understand the city is in downright 
earnest in this regard they themselves will 
meet the city authorities half way and ex- 
pedite the reform which they might delay 
were drastic methods adopted, but which 
sooner or later must come. 

Grants hitherto made by the Common 
Council to private corporations have al- 
most invariably proven of great value to 
the fortunate recipients. These have their 
rights, but they also have their duties, and 
it shall be the care of the City Executive to 
hold them to fulfillment of the same. No 
further grants ought to be made that do 
not provide full compensation to the city 
for valuable privileges given. 

I rely upon your hearty co-operation in 
every effort possible for me to make in fur- 
therance of municipal welfare, and thank- 
ing you for your attention to an address 
not designed as a message, I wish par- 
ticularly to make acknowledgment to 
the able Alderman who has filled the 
Mayoralty ad interim, and to express sat- 
isfaction that he continues his service to 
the city.

ALSO, 

The following veto message: 

Mayor's Office, ) 
Chicago, January 3, 1894. ) 

To the Honorable, the City Council : 

Gentlemen— For the reasons herein- 
after stated I return to you, without my 
approval, the ordinance passed by your 



Honorable Body on December 27, 1893, 
authorizing the Northwestern Elevated 
Railroad Company to construct and op- 
perate an elevated railway. 

The main argument advanced in favor 
of that ordinance, the one which induced 
many members of the Council to vote 
for its passage was, that it was intended 
to furnish rapid transit facilities to the 
north division of the city. The ordinance 
as passed authorizes the construction of 
an elevated railroad and branches in 
various directions, and among them in 
a northerly direction. But chere is no 
provision in the ordinance requiring the 
company to construct its road in a north- 
erly direction, and no forfeiture or 
penalty would follow the omission of the 
company to build a railroad in that di- 
rection. All that the ordinance requires 
is that within three years five miles of 
road should be constructed. Where 
these five miles of road should be built 
the ordinance does not provide. It is not 
even required that the five miles should 
be continuous. From a careful investi- 
gation I find that an elevated railroad 
connecting the business portion of the 
city with Wilson avenue, striking Grace- 
land avenue at some point between Clark 
street and Evanston avenue, striking 
Diversey street somewhere between Hal- 
sted and Clark streets, and striking Bel- 
mont avenue at some point between 
Clark street and Evanston avenue, would 
furnish rapid transit facilities where 
they are needed the most. The company 
should be required to build an elevated 
road connecting the business portion of 
the city with Wilson avenue upon the 
route just indicated within three years. 

The company should also be required 
not only to construct its tracks, but to 
have the same fully equipped and in 
operation within that time. 

The company should also be required 
to complete its northerly route to the 
northerly city limits w T ithin ten years, 
and its failure to do so should subject it 
to the payment of $25,000 for every mile 
of road not built within that time, as 



January 3,]

[1894. 



liquidated damages. Unless such a pro- 
vision is inserted in the ordinance the 
company might never extend its road 
beyond Wilson avenue, in which case the 
citizens living north of that point might 
be compelled to reach Wilson avenue by 
some other road and to pay a double 
fare. 

The ordinance as passed gives the com- 
pany too long a time for acceptance and 
also for the deposit of $100,000, provided 
in Section 12. Thirty days is ample time 
for the acceptance, and sixty days from 
the passage of the ordinance soems to 
me long enough for the deposit. 

The only compensation to the city pro- 
vided by the ordinance is the payment of 
an annual license fee of fifty ($50) dollars 
for each car used. While this probably 
is all the compensation to the city that 
should in fairness be exacted during a 
period, while in the natural course of 
events the operation of the road would 
not yield large profits, I see no reason 
why the city should not, in consideration 
of its grant of this valuable franchise, 
share in some slight degree in the profits 
which the company is certain to derive 
therefrom later on. After the expiration 
of ten years from the commencement of 
the operation of the road, it should be 
required to pay annually into the City 
Treasury some percentage of its gross 
receipts. One per cent, during the sec- 
ond period of ten years, two per cent, 
during the third, and three per cent, dur- 
ing the remainder of the fifty years for 
which the franchise is granted would 
seem to me a reasonable and equitable 
compensation to the city. 

The company should also be required 
to definitely decide, within one year from 
its acceptance of the ordinance, upon the 
exact location of its road and branches 
within the limits of the routes provided 
by the ordinance, and to file with the 
Commissioner of Public Works maps and 
plans showing such location, which loca- 
tion should be subject to the approval of 
the Mayor and Commissioner of Public 
Works. 

The number of tracks authorized by 



the ordinance as passed is not exceeding 
four, but the number of switches, spurs 
and sidetracks is without limit than the 
judgment of the company. The number 
and location of switches and sidetracks 
should be subject to the approval of the 
Commissioner of Public Works. 

The time during which any legal pro- 
ceedings shall be pending, whereby the 
company shall be prevented from or 
delayed in constructing its road, should 
be excluded from the period within 
which the lines are to be completed, only 
upon condition that the company should 
immediately notify the Corporation 
Counsel of the institution of such pro- 
ceedings, thereby giving the city an op- 
portunity to intervene in such proceed- 
ings. 

Let it not be said, because some of the 
requirements above suggested have not 
been made in previous ordinances grant- 
ing similar franchises, they should not be 
insisted on in this case. If, for instance, 
the city has in the past failed to exact 
adequate or at least reasonble compensa- 
tion for the granting of similar franchises 
that is no reason why we should not 
now make a beginning in that direction. 
It might be claimed that the parties rep- 
resenting this company will refuse to 
accept it, if the requirements and condi- 
tions above stated were insisted upon. I 
do not believe they will. But even, if 
you believe they would, that ought not 
to influence our decision. The only 
question for us to decide is, whether 
those requirements and conditions are 
reasonable in themselves. If they are, 
either this company or some other com- 
pany will be ready to submit to them. 
Let the Council, once for all, place itself 
upon record as opposed to the giving 
away of valuable franchises for fifty 
years to come, let it be once firmly un- 
derstood that no other company here- 
after asking for a franchise will be 
granted more favorable terms than those 
suggested by me, and I feel confident 
that either this or some other company 
will accept them. 

I am pledged to the promotion of all

plans for the increase of rapid transit 
facilities. lam particularly anxious to 
aid in giving the North Side such facili- 
ties; but this anxiety should not prevent 
us from dealing with the subject in a 
businesslike way, and from insisting 
upon such terms and conditions as are in 
themselves reasonable and consonant 
with right and justice. 

I herewith submit to you for your con- 
sideration a number of amendments to 
the ordinance, intended to carry out the 
views and to meet the objections herein 
above expressed, also some additional 
amendments in matters of form rather 
than substance, which will explain them- 
selves. 

In its present shape, however, I am 
constrained to veto the ordinance.

shall construct so much of the elevated 
railroad hereby authorized to be built as is 
necessary to connect the business portion 
of the city with Wilson avenue in the old 
Town of Lake View, and have said road 
fully equipped and in operation within three 
years from the acceptance of this ordinance 
toy the said company, and shall complete the 
said road to the northerly limits of the City 
of Chicago within ten years from said ac- 
ceptance of this ordinance; and if the said 
road connecting the business portion of 
the city with Wilson avenue be not so con- 
structed and equipped and in operation 
within the said three years, then all the 
rights and privileges herein granted to said 
company shall absolutely cease and be 
null and void; but if the remainder of said 
road up to the northerly limits of the city 
be not constructed within ten years from 
the acceptance of this ordinance, then all 
the rights and privileges granted to said 
oompany shall cease and be void as to the 
portion of such remainder not so con- 
structed: and the said company shall 
further pay into the Treasury of the City 
of Chicago, as liquidated damages for its 
failure to complete said road to the north- 
erly city limits, the sum of $25,000 for every 
uncompleted mile of road. A.11 other por- 
tions of the main road and branches au- 
thorized by this ordinance must be com- 



pleted within five years from the accept- 
ance of this ordinance, and as to any portion

lutely cease and be void, but the rights and 
privileges as to the portion constructed 
shall remain valid and in full force. The

shall be pending whereby the said company 
shall be prevented from or delayed in con- 
structing its railroad or branches, or any 
part thereof, shall be excluded from the 
time herein prescribed for the comple- 
tion of said elevated railroad and 
branches and shall be allowed to said com- 
pany in addition to the time prescribed for 
the completion thereof; provided, how- 
ever, that such exclusion shall date only 
from the time when the said company 
shall have given notice to the Corporation 
Counsel of the City of Chicago of the in- 
stitution of such legal proceedings. 

The City of Chicago shall have the right 
to intervene in any suit or proceeding 
brought by any person or persons seeking 
to enjoin, restrain or in any manner inter- 
fere with the prosecution of said work of 
construction and move for a dissolution of 
such injunction or restraining order, and 
for any other proper order in such suit, in 
case it shall deem such suit collusive or in- 
stituted for the purpose of delay." 

Aid. Tripp moved to amend the amend- 
ment to Section 10 by striking out the 
words "and the said company shall further 
pay into the treasury of the City of Chica-

limits, the sum of twenty-five thousand 
dollars for every uncompleted mile of

moved that it be substituted fur the amend- 
ments to Section 10: 

Strike out in Section 10 the following : 
"For a distance of five miles within three

nance, and if the said five miles of said 
road be not so constructed within the said 
three years then said rights and privileges 
granted to said company shall cease and be 
null and void, but if the remainder of said 
railroad and branches be not con- 
structed within the time specified then said 
rights and privileges granted to said 
company herein shall cease, and be null 
and void as to the portion of such remain- 
der not so constructed within the said 
time above specified, but the rights and 
privileges as to the portion constructed 
shall remain valid and in full force," 
and insert the following: "From the

ALSO, 

The following veto message: 

Mayor's Office, ) 
Chicago, Jan. 3, 1894. S 

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

I have the honor to return to you for 

further consideration two ordinances, one 

providing for the curbing, grading and 

paving of La Salle avenue, from the 

north lot line of Chicago avenue to the 

south lot line of Division street, and the 

other providing for the ^curbing, grading 

and paving of La Salle avenue, from the 

north lot line of Division to the south lot 

line of North Clark street, passed by your 

Honorable Body on December 27, 1893. 

I have no doubt that the improvements 
contemplated should be carried out, but 
I feel it to be my duty to call your atten- 
tion to an order passed by the Council on 
May 22, 1893, which is as follows: 

"Ordered, That the Commissioner of 
Public Works be and he is hereby di- 
rected that in all future ordinances and 
specifications for asphalt pavements, the 
same shall read as follows: 

"The matrix or binding material of 
which shall be a cement prepared from 
the best refined asphaltum, which shall 
be equal or superior in quality to that 
obtained from Pitch Lake, in the Island 
of Trinidad," etc. 

This order was passed as I understand 
to express the fixed policy of the Council 
in respect to asphalt pavements, and was 
based upon the opinion of the Corpora- 
rion Counsel, that an article, the monop- 



January 3,] 



1386 



[1894. ; 



oly of which is controlled by a single 
person or firm, such as asphalt which 
can only be obtained from Pitch Lake in 
the Island of Trinidad, could not be the 
subject of such competitive bidding as is 
required in making all contracts for pub- 
lic improvements by the city. 

The ordinances under consideration 
providing as they do that the asphalt to 
be used in this improvement shall not be 
obtained elsewhere than from said Pitch 
Lake, renders them obnoxious to the 
policy expressed in the above mentioned 
order, and the law in relation to compet- 
itive bids. I suggest that said ordinances 
be amended as follows: 

In Section 5, in lines 11 and 12, strike 
out all after the word * 'refined" and in- 
sert in lieu therf or the words "asphaltum 
which shall be equal or superior in qual- 
ity to that obtained from Pitch Lake in 
the Island of Trinidad." 

In Section 8, in lines 10 and 11, strike 
out after the word "refined" the words 
"Trinidad Asphaltum obtained from 
Pitch Lake in the Island of Trinidad" 
and insert in lieu thereof the words 
"asphaltum which shall be equal or 
superior in quality to that obtained from 
Pitch Lake in the Island of Trinidad." 

If such amendments were made I 
should be pleased to approve the ordi- 
nances, otherwise, this communication 
will be treated as information to the 
Council that I withhold my approval 
from each of said ordinances. 

John P. Hopkins, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Ernst moved to reconsider the vote 
by which the ordinance referred to in the

The Comptroller submitted the follow- 
ing communication in reference to the bill 
of the Chicago Mail for advertisement of 
the special election held on Dec. 19, 1893. 

Department of Finance, ) 
Chicago, January 3, 1894. ) 

To the Honorable, Ihe Mayor and Alder- 
men in City Council Assembled : 

Gentlemen— I herewith submitvoucher, 
bill and copy of advertisement in the Mail 
for the special election that was held on 
the 19th day of December, 1893. Almost a 
duplicate of this for the election held last 
April was billed and paid for at the old 
contract price of seventy-five cents ($0.75) 
per one thousand ems. This is charged at 
the rate of $3 20 per one thousand ems, 
amounting to $1,674 50, while the contract 
price is 39 cents— amounting to $208.98. I 
am of the opinion that 39 cents is all they 
are entitled to. They refused to take that, 
but said they would appeal to the Council. 

I therefore refer the matter to you for 
settlement or instructions. 

Respectfully submitted, 

O. D. Wetherell, 

City Comptroller. 
Which was 

Referred to the Committee on Finance. 

The Comptroller submitted his report for 
the year ending December 30, 1893, which 
was 

Ordered published and referred to the 
Committee on Finance. 

The following is the report: 

Chicago, Jan. 3, 1894. 
To the Honorable, the Mayor and Alder- 
men in City Council Assembled : 

Gentlemen— I submit herewith, as re- 
quested, a report made by the book-keeper 
of this office showing the cash in the City 
Treasury to the credit of the various funds, 



January 3,] 



1387 



[1894. 



the resources and liabilities of the General 
Fund in sight, and the total receipts and 
expenditures of the city for the year to 
December 30, 1893. A complete report of 
the finances of the city will be made as 
soon as the books for the year are closed, 
showing the exact assets and liabilities of 
the city, and of the Department Funds in 
detail. In conclusion allow me to make a 
few suggestions as to what I intended to 
do, had I continued in this office: First— 
I should have asked you to create the office 
of Deputy Comptroller, who should have 
the powers usually given to that officer, 
and who should be an expert accountant, 
and a part of his duty should be to har- 
monize the books in all of the departments, 
and make them all subordinate to the books 
in this office, and so arrange that all money 
received should be deposited daily in the 
Treasury, and all moneys paid only on 
warrants drawn in this office. This officer 
would perform much of the clerical work 
now done by the Comptroller, which would 
enable the Comptroller to have a more 
general and better supervision over the 
departments that are under his charge. I 
intended to employ additional men to visit 
the County Treasurer's office and report 
daily the amounts paid in on each special 
assessment warrant, thereby enabling this 
office to know exactly how much money 
could be demanded from that official and, 
in case the contractor's were entitled to it, 
to pay them, and the balance could be 
drawing interest for the city. I also in- 
tended to employ one or more reliable men 
to look after rents, etc., and in addition to 
visit at irregular intervals, the foreman of 
the different street gangs, check up the 
number of names on his book, and imme- 
diately count the men at work. In this, or 
some better way, I think a large part of the 
danger of loss by the "stuffing of the pay 
rolls" may be avoided. I would also have 
recommended the establishment of a pay- 
master's department, which would take 
exclusive charge of all the pay- rolls of the 
city and have it as an exclusive duty to 
attend to the payment of the city em- 
ployes. I had some other matters under 
consideration which were not fully decided 
on. My successor, however, will in a few 
days be familiar with the work of this 
office, and the needs of the city, and it will 



be easier for him to work out his own 
plans than to try to follow mine. 
Respectfully submitted, 

O. D. Wetheeell, 
City Comptroller. 



Chicago, December 30, 1893. 
Hon. O. D. Wetherell, Comptroller: 

Dear Sir — Pending the preparation of 
the exhaustive financial report, made 
annually in this office, I have the honor, 
in compliance with your request, to sub- 
mit the following report covering the 
same ground as that submitted some 
days ago to Mayor pro tern Swift, by Mr„ 
Kingwill, but with the proper deductions. 
I also append a statement showing the 
increase of the city's liabilities during 
the past year, the error in the estimates 
of the Finance Committee, and the total 
receipts and expenditures of the corpora- 
tion from January 1, 1893, to December 
30, 1893, with the cash balance in the 
Treasury at the present date.

Surplus, resources over liabilities.! 1,958.111 63 

If we deduct from the liabilities the 
amount of public benefits due to the spe- 
cial-assessment fund, which is a liability 
of one of the city funds to another, the 
present resources of the general fund, 
over all liabilities will be seen to be 
$2,889,495.09. 

The liability referred to as public 
benefits is an indebtedness of the city to 
the ! pecial-assessment fund, and is the 
city's portion of taxes due for special as- 
sessments during the years 1889-90-91-92. 
Previous Comptrollers have permitted 
these taxes to remain unpaid in order to 
keep a working capital in the general 
fund of the city. They have been en- 
abled to do this from the fact that there 
has always been, as there is now, a cer- 
tain surplus of money in the special-as- 
sessment fund arising from the collection 
of special taxes for improvements, in 
anticipation of the work being performed 
by the contractors. This money cannot 
be called for until the completion and 
acceptance of the work for which it is 
collected, and the special -assessment 
fund has therefore been able to meet its 
obligations without calling upon the city 
for the payment of this indebtedness- 
This state of affairs will probably con- 
tinue during 1894, and no imperative call 
will be made upon the city to meet this 
liability -or at least the greater part of it. 

The appropriations for public benefits 
for the years 1889, 1890, 1891 and 1892, 
respectively , were: In 1889, $501,006.51; 
in 1890, $331,539.64; in 1891, $425,000; 
in 1892, $75,000. The actual taxes for 
public benefits to be paid out of these ap- 
propriations were: In 1889, $456,432.55; 
in 1890, $403,694.55; in 1891, $421,31241; 
in 1892, $73,457.14. These items cover 
the administrations of Mayors Cregier 
and Washburne, and are all r a maining 
unpaid, with the exception of $423,513.19, 
which was paid by Mr. H. N. May, 
Comptroller, on December 31, 1891, on 
account of the taxes due for public bene- 



fits in 1889. The balance, amounting to 
$931,383,46, remains unpaid. Of this 
large liability, only $73,457.14 accrued 
during the recent administration, the 
balance having been inherited from the 
two previous administrations, as noted 
above. 

The Finance Committee last spring es- 
timated the reoeipts for the year 1893 
from miscellaneous sources to be as fol- 
lows:

laneous sources, were as follows:

The above statement shows the error 
in the estimates of the committee. In 
consequence of this error and of over- 
drafts of their appropriations by several 
of the departments, the city has been 
unable to meet its judgment account for 
the year 1892. The following compara- 
tive statement shows the increase in the 
liabilities of the general fund of the city 
during the past year:

of does not exceed the sum of $2,000. 

In December, 1893, we advertised for 
bids for constructing such sidewalks, 
which bids do not exceed th6 sum of two 
thousand dollars. Before entering into a 
contract with the lowest bidder, I asked 
the Corporation Counsel as to my authority 
to make a contract on the above order. He 
informs me that the order is "equivalent to 
an order to pay for the improvement out of 
any moneys in the treasury not otherwise 
appropriated. But if there is money in the 
sidewalk fund sufficient for that purpose, 
the order would afford authority for its 
payment; but if there is no fund appropria- 
ted specifically for that purpose, then the 
order under consideration would not justify 
making the contract or incurring the lia- 
bility because the order was not passed by 
an aye and no vote, as required by the 
charter." 

There is no money in the sidewalk fund, 
consequently I am unable to let the con- 
tract for the construction of the sidewalks^ 
unless your Honorable Body pass another 
order by an aye and no vote, instructing 
me out of what fund to p;ty for the work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. J. Jones, 

Commissioner of Public Works.

ferred to be passed.
